Located just 50 meters from Mason & Main, Cumberland City Council’s development application for Merrylands Civic Square has been approved by the Sydney Central City Planning Panel, with demolition works of the arcade in progress and construction commencing imminently.
The square will be a new hub for businesses and residents to come together, enhancing the sense of community in the already vibrant suburb. Merrylands Civic Square also connects to Mason & Main’s Eat Street, further enriching the value of the precinct.

The $11 million civic square will create an open and green meeting place in the heart of Merrylands.
Mayor of Cumberland City Council Steve Christou is delighted to see construction commencing and explains, “it will connect Merrylands Road through to McFarlane Street to create a focal point and sense of community in the town centre.”
Stage one of the Merrylands Civic Square is set to open in December 2022.
